What Facebook revealed!

January 18, 2013

Facebook AppYesterday I was installing a Facebook application in my mobile and I unintentionally or rather Facebook sent mass friend request to all my contacts saved in my phone.

Guess what happened next, obviously I had to cancel all friend request sent, thanks to the new activity log, even though I had to manually cancel all request, it was easy! But it revealed a lot of things.

  1. One of my close friends has a fake profile! He isn’t any celebrity but he does!, that too linked with his mobile no as the application uses the phone nos in your contacts to send request and his profile has liked 521 random pages.
  2. There were at least 30 fake profile created randomly with just names and possibly random phone no. out of 225 request sent which suggests 10% of users in Facebook are fake! BEWARE
  3. A few random people have used the phone nos of the contacts I have and linked it with their profile, that was really weird!
  4. One of the request sent was to a prominent media person whose no. I am sure I never had, I thought this could be because of two reasons either he/she uses mobile no which is not his or hers or it could be the no of someone I knew and he would have stopped using the no and the service providers would have allotted the same no. to another person

That was it, took two whole hours to cancel the request, but boy it revealed a lot of things, I made sure no one can find me using mobile no. search, you can too disable it in your privacy settings!

Google Your Name.

February 21, 2010

Now this is to find how famous are you over internet, I am sure by now you would have googled your name and would have seen the result, for the first timers , you did be surprised that you are recognized by Google and that your name and various details do appear on the first few pages.

Now how about trying .” I am feeling lucky.” If you are using facebook, your facebook profile is what you see , provided you are a little active on it, or it would be some other person’s profile, which means you are not an internet addict :D.

Or if you have your blog with your blog’s name the same as yours. It will re-direct to your blog . Isn’t internet cool.

You can try my name and Google . It would start from my FaceBook profile, to my twitter and my blog.

But the best is when you type, “Entemind” and click, “I am feeling lucky.” You will see my blog 🙂 .  That’s what makes you unique in the internet world . It will surely help you, if you face interview questions like, “What makes you special in the crowd. ”

I know that this post is lame for those who have already tried it, but it is also to remind you to  follow me for witnessing a brand new category set to be launched soon !!!
